About Chandra

I purchased this house because Downieville is a little piece of gold in heaven. It's such a sweet little town, and a great place to relax and turn it all off!

Chandra purchased this house in 2004

Why Chandra chose Gold Country & High Sierra

I loved this property because of the space it offers. It has a large living room and kitchen. Perfect for entertaining friends and family. The deck wraps around the entire house, and everyone just loves sitting on the deck and enjoying the views.

What makes this house unique

This house is well built. Stays cool in the summer, warm in the winter, and in on the SunnySide of the mountain, which means it gets full sun all year round. The house offers space to enjoy company but not be cramped in one room. This is just a short walk to town, and entertainment. This is the perfect house to have a small retreat, a family reunion or just a party with good friends. You can hang out on the deck, or in the main living room. There's enough space for everyone.

We've added a place for children to play. The house is pretty safe inside for children with gates to protect from the stairs. On the deck, children need to be supervised, however, there is gates to lock up to prevent them from heading downstairs.

Great house for a large gathering with young children!

  • 5 of 5

The SunnySide House was perfect for our family of 7 adults and 2 four-year-olds. It's spacious, has plenty of bathrooms, well-equipped kitchen and lots of toys to entertain young children. Chandra was very accommodating and available for questions, etc. We enjoyed walking around the town of Downieville and the river. We would gladly stay there again!

Great accommodations

  • 5 of 5

A fantastic house with an accommodating Host! The wrap around porch was a huge plus, especially since we spent most of our time out on it. The view from the deck into the forest was fantastic, and watching the sun set illuminating the trees, all from the deck was special. Huge kitchen, plenty of beds, clean and comfortable, again, great house, we'll be back for sure!

Wonderful House

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at Sunnyside House. The house was extremely clean and well stocked. The wrap around deck is amazing. We enjoyed the breeze and the beautiful views. Just a short walk to the main street, some great local spots and friendly folks. Thank you to the owners who were very responsive and helpful. We will be back.

A great way to show your family what Downieville has to offer

  • 5 of 5

As Chandra mentioned the driveway is steep. However she mentioned by next year the driveway would be paved. If you have little ones this place is amazing for them. We had 3 couples with kids ranging from 1 year old to 2 1/2. The wrap around deck (with closed doors so little ones can't escape) with the toy scooters worked really well for the 2 two year olds. I am going to guess they lapped that place a hundred times.

We brought our joggers to bring the kids on which was great as the location of the house is so close to downtown, the playground, and the water.

Because it was fairly warm during our visit it was a real treat to enjoy the large deck for most if not all of the meals outside. Beds were comfortable and having the fans was a big help for the bedrooms upstairs.

Your little ones on top of having nature to explore had so many toys to play with, so don't even bother bringing toys with you, Chandra has everything you need.

There is also a stroller and a jogger in the garage if needed.

The best part. My wife and my buddies wife who were resistant in coming since it was pretty much a dad's mtn bike trip/ birthday fell in love with setup for the kids and the downtown and they even said they were looking forward to next year !

Amazing House!!!

  • 5 of 5

Came up for out annual Downieville Mountain bike trip, this year was the first time in the Sunnyside house. I can't say enough good things about the house, very well equipped. Kitchen was set up perfect, we didn't need to bring anything to cook with, beds are SUPER comfortable, Great garage to store/work on bikes and the view from the deck is insane! It was SO perfect finishing and amazing ride and enjoying a cold beer on the deck overlooking some perfect scenery. I would absolutely recommend staying here. Thank you to the owners for such a great location!!!
